ALBANY, NY (AP) -- 

Attorneys general from more than two dozen states want federal regulators to impose restrictions on electronic cigarettes, including a ban on the more than 7,000 flavors now available.

In a letter Friday to the Food and Drug Administration, they say limits on advertising and prohibiting flavors besides tobacco and menthol will help protect minors.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says that while they contain no tobacco, e-cigarettes have all the same addictive qualities as regular cigarettes.

In April, the federal agency proposed treating e-cigarettes as tobacco products, putting them under its regulatory control.

Cigarette maker Altria says the FDA should determine appropriate product standards and marketing restrictions based on science and evidence, respect adult consumer preferences and not automatically apply cigarette restrictions to e-vapor products.

NEW YORK (AP) -- 

Billy Joel, Maria Shriver and Samuel L. Jackson — baby boomers all — will be among those featured in an upcoming PBS documentary about the post-World War II generation.

PBS announced Thursday that "American Masters: The Boomer List" will air Sept. 23 on member stations. The 90-minute production, directed by filmmaker-photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, will include 19 notable public figures. Their years of birth represent each of the years commonly associated with the baby boom era, 1946-64. The list also includes Rosie O'Donnell, Tommy Hilfiger and Steve Wozniak.

Greenfield-Sanders' portraits of the interviewees will be included in a companion coffee table book and in an exhibit at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. "The Boomer List: Photographs by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders" will run at the Newseum from Sept. 26 through June 2015.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- 

A man accused of throwing furniture on the set of a Woody Allen movie in Rhode Island's capital has been arrested and charged with assault.

Providence police say the man tossed a chair and assaulted security guards Tuesday on the set, which is near Brown University.

Security guards tell WPRI-TV the man went to the set and began asking "weird questions" about the movie's stars, who include Emma Stone, Joaquin Phoenix and Parker Posey.

Allen has been filming in Rhode Island since last month.

Police identify the man as Mark Spiridakos. They say he ran from the set and was tackled and then was taken to a hospital with a head injury.

Spiridakos can't be reached for comment in the hospital. It's unclear whether he has a lawyer.

Emmanuelle & Julien
NEW YORK -- 

Hornet has signed the directing team of Emmanuelle & Julien for representation in the U.S. and Canada. The helming duo--whose bread and butter is CG with sleek renders and express characters--comes to Hornet via a partnership with Parisian production company ChezEddy.

Emmanuelle, a noteworthy character designer, and Julien, a talented 3D artist, place comedy and character at the center of their work. The duo first gained attention for their university film A La Française, which the pair completed alongside classmates Morrigane Boyer, William Lorton, and Ren Hsien Hsu. A series of silent gags about the 17th Century French aristocracy, portrayed as stuffy, slightly hedonistic chickens, the film--conceived by Julien--won a string of awards and was the highlight of numerous festivals.

With the same subtle humor, expression and comedic timing found in their shorts, the duo has also been taking More
